Re: where to buy bukoor in Switzerland?

Yes and various other websites in England. They deliver a few times and then the red writing arrives. do not ship to Switzerland.

And where does the red writing come from?
I got other suppliers in GB who I deal with for decades.

Re: where to buy bukoor in Switzerland?

Try searching for the same brand on amazon.de, maybe they can deliver from Germany. You can use same credentials as amazon.uk to order.

Sukran akhui!
Last time I checked the Germans there was none, this time I got exactly what I wanted AND so far no delivery-discussions (maybe next time. LOL).

Re: where to buy bukoor in Switzerland?

Thank you OP and all the contributors to this thread! It opened up a whole new world of... scent for me.

*Googling "what is bukhoor" followed by "where to buy, how to use"

So, beginning of last month I received my bukoor from amazon.uk. No problems. Lovely stuff. So lovely that an Arab friend ask me to get him some too - one should think it would be the other way around but ahhh, well ....

So, I wanna reorder (there is a reorder button there!!) last night and amazon.uk tells me they don't deliver this to Switzerland! Moody much?

I wrote them an email, yes, insh'Allah I'll get a (unreliable?) reply.

Anybody else had that problem with amazon.uk?
Got the reply from the GB supplier (which all goes via amazon.uk):

<<Order ID 202-4976987-6209902:
1 of Oudh Black (60g) Agarwood Bakhoor Incense by Nabeel [ASIN: B009FMILWS]

------------- Begin message -------------

Hi,
I am not sure what you are talking about, there hasn't been any changes in the international shipping for this item.
This is a company account not a personal account and anyways this item is out of stock at the moment you can't buy it, I am not sure what item are you talking about.
Regards,
The Orient>>


So the Orient quotes my order-no. and product - knows that it is out of stock (not according to amazon.uk it isn't) but is not sure what item I'm talking about. Dizzy much?

As I said, was able to order it via amazon.de today and just got information that is has been shipped (wow, poor folks work on Sundays). So you might be better off to do the same if you're after this bukoor.

The email sounds very customer-friendly......

Re: where to buy bukoor in Switzerland?

Hey Curley

Have you tired to find it in ZH somewhere again? It seems like a lot of hassle you go through when buying online.

I just googled 'Räucherwerk' and 'Zürich' and this came up:

Thanks, Dechen. First link I will definitely check out. I still have a lot now though. I ordered from GB (via amazon), the second time they got complicated but then I saw amazon.de also delivers it, no problems.

What will be nice about the shop is I can choose by actually smelling it

Re: where to buy bukoor in Switzerland?

I used to burn a lot of incense materials (e.g. olibanum, sandalwood etc.) on 'Räucherkohle'. I loved it. Now we only use 'ready' made Tibetan incense sticks
